Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of six in the "Understanding Money" series, this title focuses on the beginnings of trade and how it has affected world history. An eye-catching layout, color photos, charts and graphs and a question and answer format combine to create an interesting, up-to-date introduction to the world of economics for elementary students. The nine chapters begin by defining economics and discussing the historical roots of trade. The book goes on to discuss how trade has affected history, how trade grew around the world, the meaning of free trade, trade agreements, who governs free trade, how businesses benefit from trade, globalization, and how pirates affect trade. In the discussion on globalization, the affects of rising unemployment and the plight of the individual workers are barely mentioned. This has had a huge impact on our economy and is a discussion that students could well participate in. Features such as problems to solve, boxed information and helpful hints, an index, glossary of terms, and sources for further study are included. Some repetition throughout the series reinforces important concepts. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
